A 10-year-old boy from Brixham will receive an award today after rescuing two stranded sailors out at sea.

Stuart Crang rowed out in his eight-foot boat to tow the pair back to dry land in July. Their dinghy had got into trouble about half a mile off Fishcombe.

Stuart will be presented with a certificate of valour by Brixham Harbour Master Captain Paul Labistour.
